The menu outside does not do justice to the food seved. The shared starter plate is amazing and the pasta dishes are sumptuous. The steaks are excellent and to be honest so us everything we have had here. I can thorough nrecommend La Scala to anyone and their best review was a table of Italians dining there. If lunching the... More

Just like a movie set. Even the washing hanging on the line. It looks good inside and it tastes just as good as it looks. Plenty of variety in the menu, entrecôte steaks cooked exactly as we ordered (3 different). Try their Cognac ice cream.

Went once for lunch and wont be returning. poorly explained menu. eg. When I asked hat was in a "salad complete" I got the response "lots of things". Very little choice. Poor service. On the plus side there is the view of the river.

La Scala is a lovely place for an informal meal with friends and family. We've been a couple of times recently. The online booking system on the restaurant's own website works well and the staff are both friendly and efficient but don't make you feel at all rushed. The imaginative surroundings are fun and even though the menu has fairly... More

This is an Italian-themed restaurant and its decor is very effective. The service was fast - perhaps too fast to enable really personal service. On the whole, however, we found the experience quite satisfactory.

Folks, I suggest you give this place a miss. There are a host of great restaurants in Cognac that should have your custom, but this isn't one of them. My girlfriend and I went on a Thursday night in late August. It was 9pm when we sat down at the table and when we left at 10pm we were still... More

Meal was enjoyable but menu limited we thought. Escalope Milanese not available as more than one order required, other meat dishes mostly duck based. Pizzas good. Service a little slow. Smokers on terrace a nuisance. Interior of resaurant has creative decor.

Very nice visit, delicious food and very accommodating. Set opposite a river. On the night we visited there was a water jousting competition going on, very entertaining. There are also boat trips available on the river which we also did.

Friendly welcome at lunchtime, we sat outside on the terrace overlooking the Charente. We chose pizza which was delicious. Staff were friendly and helpful. The inside with the Italian theme created a great atmosphere.
